Play was only OK but definitely memorable, we arrived late as the play was about to start and were seated, it seems, back stage.
That probable would've been okay except the seats were hard, uncomfortable, wooden folding chairs, but on the plus side we could hear about 75% of the
actors dialog...need I say more. (I thought the seven actors were very good.)
We will surely remember my wife's 68th birthday evening!
Quotes & Highlights
- "Flaherty gives us a silky, romantic, melodious score, and Ahrens' lyrics are dependably intelligent and poetic." --Pittsburgh Tribune-Review
- "Flaherty and Ahrens remain one of the most talented teams of contemporary musical theater dramatists in the field." --Variety
What better way to ring in the new year than with a great laugh. The Glorious Ones, a musical from the Tony Award-winning writers of Ragtime and Seussical, was hailed by the New York Times as “a valentine to the actor’s life.” Both slapstick and serious, the show follows the first commedia dell’arte troupe as they search for immortality and love, on a journey that leads right to present day. Playing for only five performances in a black-box theater setting, Rose Center Theater presents The Glorious Ones.
Also Rose Center Theater invites you to a special presentation of The Glorious Ones on January 6th, as they host a post-show gala with hors d’oeuvres, drinks, and a chance to mingle with the cast.
